    .Chevron Brazil Suits Double to $22 Billion With New Claim
    By Peter Millard and Adriana Brasileiro - Apr 4, 2012 4:28 PM ET

    Chevron Corp. (CVX) and Transocean Ltd. (RIG) are being sued for $22 billion in environmental damages in Brazil, double initial claims, after a federal prosecutor filed a second lawsuit over oil spills off the nation’s coast.

    Chevron committed “a series of errors” that led to the March spill at Frade, the second incident at the offshore oil project, the federal prosecutors’ office said in a statement yesterday.

    Did you read the link or google the incident?
    Or was that just a canned response?

    Did you mind when Obama banned drilling here but gave Brazil money to do it there?
